Tour description

On this tour we will go to the best food street in Cairo. Even if you are not familiar or a fan of Egyptian food you should go to Alfy Street and try the best street food in Cairo. It’s full of all sorts Egyptian food restaurants and carts as well as international food, which this street are government inspected regularly for cleanliness and considered very safe. It is the ideal place to have dinner after your tour in Cairo.

This street is where local Egyptian families gather to eat various food and meals and drink fresh fruit drinks and hot drinks at the cheapest prices

Yes, at the cheapest prices!

For only 10 dollars, you can eat more than three meals, drink a large sized fresh juice, get some sweets and drink a delicious hot cup of Egyptian tea to finish.

You will see the cooking process from A to Z, not only about the foodstuffs, but also you will get a chance to learn about Egyptian eating habits which are different from all other countries. Drinking Hibiscus, Karakare, Helba, or any of the various typical Egyptian beverages, is a pleasant experience for visitors and guests to get a real taste experience. For smokers, there is the Shisha or hoka. 

I will be with you to explain our Egyptian food and take the best photos of your Cairo street food tour. It's the place where food art and Cairo lifestyle come together harmoniously providing you a unique & remarkable experience.

Please note that
1- All the street food that we will eat on the tour mostly contains fresh beef and beef derivatives. If you are vegetarian 🌱🚫 so we can’t recommend this tour for you .

Firstly, we did three of Sherif’s tours and was all amazing guys. In this tour we learned what Egyptian street food is like and we tried so many delicious things with Sherif. All were absolutely safe and in a good amount and price. We had great time all together and we were really excited about the food and drinks that we tried. He has great sense of humour, he is flexible and can help you with every issue. He is what a guide should be like. Totally recommend!

The tour with Sherif was one of the best I ever had. He is very informed, his english is really good and he gave us the best recommendation not only regarding food but everything related to Cairo and Egypt. Make sure you don't have lunch the day you are doing the tour as you will eat a LOT!! Thank you Sherif
